The development proposes to conserve and protect all existing woodland areas and natural environment, as well as the construction of 36 timber eco-cabins raised on stilts to conserve ground conditions in the wildlife.

The project also comprises the upgrade of the existing reception building and shop, along with an environmental induction area to immerse visitors in environmental topics. The existing parking space is to be refurbished with grasscrete to enhance its sustainability.

Father and son team John and Johnny O'Sullivan have been speaking to Let's Talk about their hopes for the development:
